Calexit Leader: Export Middle Class To Make Room For Next “Wave” Of Immigrants

Calexit leader Shankar Singam appeared on Tuesday’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight to promote the secession of California from the union. Singam said California doesn’t have much in common with the rest of the country. He declared, “This is California. We’re not the United States.”
The Calexit proponent also said it is a “good thing” that the middle class is fleeing the state because it will make room for the “new wave” of immigrants. Singam told Carlson that “the United States” should be thanking “us” for “exporting” the state’s middle class to the rest of the country.

“If everyone in the middle class is leaving, that’s actually a good thing. We need these spots opened up for the new wave of immigrants to come up. It’s what we do,” Singam told Carlson.

Carlson responds to Singam’s claim that California is one of the largest economies in the world, saying that is due to the large wealth gap between the rich such as tech companies and the poor. Carlson pointed out that there is basically no middle class as they are packing up and moving out of the state.

“Your state or country or whatever we’re calling it now, there’s been a massive exodus of middle-class Californians to neighboring states. The numbers are there. You’ve lost hundreds of thousands making between $100,000 and $200,000 over the past 10 years and they’ve enriched Idaho and Montana and even Wyoming and Washington state. If it’s such a well-run place, why are the middle class leaving?” Carlson asked Singam.

“Tucker, you have to look at the bigger picture here,” Singam answered. “The fifth largest economy in the world. Just repeat that. Say it again. We are the fifth largest economy.”

“That’s the first time I’ve heard that,” Carlson said. “It’s basically the economy of Mexico. You’ve got a small number of rich people, the tech people, and then you’ve got a ton of poor people and the middle class is leaving. That’s a recipe for instability. You’re aware of that, right?”

“If everyone in the middle class is leaving, that’s actually a good thing. We need these spots opened up for the new wave of immigrants to come up. It’s what we do. We export our middle class to the United States. You guys should be thanking us for that,” Singam said to a stunned Carlson.

“Not only that, when our middle class does move out to Texas and Colorado they are taking our values out to the United States. If you look at Texas, in fact, all the major cities Californians are going to they are turning blue. And soon enough Texas will be a blue state,” Singam said.

“Dude,” Carlson said to Singam.

“I’ve never met you, I’ve never heard of you. I don’t know if this is a parody segment, you know, if you’re punking me or if you’re really high and you’re just telling the truth because high people do. But you just said you’re happy to be exporting the middle class in your state. I happen to think your policy makers are happy that they are leaving but the fact that you are admitting this on live TV — bottom line, are you being serious?” Carlson asked.

“I’m only admitting the truth,” Singam responded. “There’s a middle class of people who are leaving California and moving to Oregon and Colorado and Texas, yes, there is.”

“And you’re happy about that?” Carlson asked.

“I think they’ll find out how boring it is and come back,” Singam answered.

    Watch this for giggles. Then, search for “Mark Baird YouTube”and watch anything where he speaks.

    This person is an enemy of the United States of America and should be arrested and tried for treason.

  3. My wife and I are part of the middle class in Kalifornistan and we will be gone before the end of the year. This guy is an idiot. The middle class he wants to leave to make room for more immigrants are the ones that pay a lot of the taxes that supports this crazy state. It won’t be long before there are only 4 types of people left in Kalifornistan, the rich (although I think they will start to bail too), the poor (net takers from the economy), public employees and professional politicians both of which are net takers as well. They can have it.

      TREMORS………I feel your pain………My family settled here in this, at one time, great state, in 1838; All have left. In my advancing years I wish to remain, hopeful, that the Cuckoo, in the clock, will be replaced with a wise owl.

  4. I watched that segment on Tucker and was disgusting by this swarmy smug idiot. As soon as I can get medicare, I’m out of this place. It’s for the rich, the public employees and the serf class that services the rest. No room for me any longer and I am a native.

  6. So what class does this shithead belong to? not middle class –so must be a lower low class or sewer rat–why waste people ‘s time by putting this scum sucking turd on Tucker’s show–no one cares what he says

  7. California resident and this asswipe is dilutional. I am also ex military that swore and oath to defend the US against both foreign and domestic enemies and when that happens this stupid asswipe is mine…

      I I live in California but am an American first. If I am forced to leave do the idiots believe I am going to leave my assets here. It is interesting to see how that works out. The issue is much more complicated than most people realize. It might be smart to start making plans but other than that don’t worry to much about it and loss any sleep over the discussion.

  8. Where the hell did this halfwit come from. He does not speak for me. I live in California which IS part of America. He says we do things different in California? I call BS. Maybe some folks lifestyle which I find disgusting for the most part. Of course there is the lack of following the constitution. I really have no voice here any more, so I put my trust in our President. When will President Trump step in and stop this madness? I pay my taxes I deserve some representation. Im anchored here via my business. Somebody stop the insanity please!!!

  9. This guy is a poster boy example of drinking too much liberal kool-aid. In terms of his picture, look at detroit which has been heavily democratic longer. I hope the feds come in to restore legal balance to this corrupt state. The governor is illegal, the top two voting scheme get rids of minority voting, many of the gun control schemes are as well. We are guaranteed a republician (peer) form of government according to the constitution, what we have is a state controlled by liberal terrorists like this wacko.

  10. I think he’d make a very good lamp-post decoration for any neighborhood where his “new immigrants” are planning to live.

  11. I think this is a good idea. However the vote should be by county and the counties should be able to remain in the US. This way I can move to the US and watch from comfort the collapse and fall of Commies. The first thing to do in Sac is to watch the departure of Gov. Moonbeam !

  12. When you say “your comment is awaiting moderation” you should say it awaits editing approval or as they say in China/Venezuela censorship

    As a Citizen of California this guy is insulting!
    But, he is in the majority, the majority of socialist in California.
    His kind believes that everything should be fee if he doesn’t have to pay for it. He wants the likes of me to pay for his generosity of my hard work and acquired wealth.
    Nothing less than a true Communist! The kind that killed millions so the soup lines wouldn’t be too long for the world to see.
    Evil comes in all shapes and sizes and California is leading the pack on evil! See gov Brown and his Sacramento loons for proof!

  14. Rather than help those facing ‘Desperation Immigration’ from their home countries, and enabling them to build up those Foreign Nations – Those seeking to ‘fundamentally transform’ America and particularly the People’s Republic of Taxifornia are bent on bringing in essentially ‘Language Captive’ minorities (those unable to speak English at any functional level) – who will then Vote as Directed – meaning for radical Leftist / Demi-Krat agendas.

    There were reports from Frisco of the vile Pederast Politico insider Juan Enrique Pearce (the force behind Mayor Ed Lee’s election & others) – of using Stencils to guide such Non-English Speakers in filling out absentee ballots – with results destructive to Electoral Integrity and American Democracy.

    What a Shame that Chris Columbus didn’t discover “Indian Americans” fleeing their trashed Country, but instead misnamed those he met as American Indians.

    Anyone familiar with the nightmare of India – where close to a Billion People have No Toilets and a Caste System supports deplorable discrimination – Will doubtless appreciate that this IASS wants to do the same for the People’s Republik of Kalifornia

    “Indian American Shankar Singam supports “Calexit” from US

  15. John Teves says

    What an arrogant. pompous idiot. These fools would turn California into Venezuela within in 10 years. we would all be poor and there would be a cabal of elitists living like kings running the country. This guy probably hates the confederacy and is acting like a confederate.

  16. CaliExpat says

    Ironic that this asswipe is named after a symptom associated with venereal disease…
    Well pal, we did our part and abandoned ship for Colorado two months ago, but the only new immigrants that took our place are the Indo-Chinese that invade the formerly bucolic neighhood of Oak Park in Ventura County…
    We sold our place to an older couple who want to be closer to the grandkids that are being indoctrinated by the #OPUSD to be “caring and compassionate global citizens”..
    Figured it was time to take the money and run to Douglas County CO for the next chapter…
    As great a run it WAS in OP, the NEXT 23 years looks better in Colorado, where the jobs are almost too plentiful and the scenery is beautiful, too…
    Cali is a nice place to be from and come back to visit occasionally…but to LIVE and be taxed by these idiots and stupid voters???
    No way…
